Sean calls his father and soon the entire Quinn Family, along with their enforcers are at the hospital trying to find Ryan, each for very different reasons. This sets off a chain of reactions as Sean's men are trigger happy and act irrationally, and Patrick's men, older, follow his orders.

Soon Sean's men begin to terrorize the hospital staff, knocking out the guard Frank, played by Marc-Anthony Massiah, and killing a receptionist. Which causes Patrick to intervene and force them to listen though the only language they understand, violence.
